(Supported by Structural Division)
This seminar reviews the
analysis and design of scaffold structures. The seminar will review
work undertaken into scaffold collapses and the methods proposed to insure
stability and safety of scaffolding works in construction site, which is
always a concerned safety issue not only in Hong Kong, but in many places
because of the difficulty and complexity in conducting a reliable design and
analysis check on a scaffold system.
This seminar is on the
technique for design for collapse prevention such as the incident below.
